Titans Say Good-Bye to Urethane
Lindenhurst, IL - July 12, 2012 - Work has begun for the
renovation at the Shirk Center on the campus of Illinois Wesleyan
University in Bloomington, IL.
Kiefer Specialty Flooring is supplying and installing
state-of-the-art products from Mondo including Mondotrack
SX, the official track surface of the 2012 Olympic Games in
London. The new Mondo surface replaces an existing Martin urethane
floor that had become extremely hard, making it difficult for
athletes to train on.
Brion Rittenberry, President and CEO at Kiefer Specialty Flooring
commented, "Illinois Wesleyan University is truly one of the elite
athletic programs in the country. We are honored that they have
placed their trust in Kiefer to complete this major renovation to
the Shirk Center. We are convinced that the student-athletes at the
University will find the new Mondo surface to be vastly superior to
the existing Martin urethane surface."
Mike Wagner, Associate Athletic Director at Illinois Wesleyan
University added, "We are very excited about the new Mondo surfaces
being installed in our facility this summer. Our student-athletes,
students, alumni, and users of the Shirk Center will be treated to
a first-class upgrade when they get back to campus in the
